Review and Tasting

Sampled on 12/06/2017


(sample bottle BBE Mar/18) Crystal clear, plentiful fast rising bubbles.


Quinine, flinty minerality and very faint lemon meringue pie filling.


Clean in style with moderate carbonation. Quinine bitter dryness and citric acidity balanced by mild sugar sweetness with very subtle zesty lemon.


Lingering quinine dryness, light citric acidity and faint lemon.


A clean, balanced tonic with good quinine bitterness. Lemon notes are very faint and don’t distract from its straight forward quinine style.
